Admission to the LPN to ADN Bridge Program required. The Bridge Clinical Concepts course is designed to facilitate the transition of the Licensed Practical Nurse, LPN, to the role of the Associate Degree Nurse (ADN) and to build on the PN curriculum. The faculty designed the ADN curriculum using a concept based framework. The Clinical Concepts III and IV courses build on and expand from this course. In Bridge Clinical Concepts, students gain beginning knowledge about Associate Degree nursing using a holistic, evidence-based approach. Students learn about holistic health care and application of the nursing process to clients and families focusing on concepts of immunity, metabolism, oxygen, perfusion, culture, and comfort, specifically comfort at end-of-life. Students expand learning about pharmacology, pathophysiology, communication and teaching. Through laboratory and clinical experiences students expand assessment and intervention skills with emphasis on interventions for adult clients in acute care facilities.
